Work-related fatality numbers dropped in 2011

We frequently write about the working conditions that contribute to preventable employee fatalities. Thankfully, there is some optimistic news to report. In 2011, fewer employees experienced the kinds of catastrophic workplace injuries that ultimately lead to death than were suffered in the previous year. Though this may seem like a small victory, the statistic is hopefully the start of a positive trend toward greater safety in the workplace.

It is no secret that some industries are inherently more dangerous than others. The construction industry for example, can be a dangerous business. Our New York readers learned recently about a construction accident involving a crane, in which a construction worker was killed.

When the work of others hurts fellow employees

When conditions in a place of business compromise the safety of patrons, they usually also compromise the safety of employees serving those patrons. Recently, the engineering work completed by workers employed at two American Airlines bases and outside contractors compromised the safety of the airline's passengers and crew. Though workplace injuries can occur at any worksite, injuries occurring thousands of feet in the air can be particularly perilous.
